  • dharma Oct 13, 2019

    Oil change before 1500km but I adjust tappet now because tappet noise

  • ANTISPAMMER Oct 13, 2019

    you want to be sure you dont adjust clearances too tight or your valves will leak. a little tappet noise isnt bad if it goes away after warmup

SOURCE: Ticking noice

If your not already, try using a genuine Nissan oil filter next time you get your oil changed. Most aftermarket filters allow the oil to drain back so when you start up cold the filter is in essence dry and not primed most likely causing the noise your experiencing. This would be the first thing I would reccommend checking.

SOURCE: Steering Wheel noise on cold start

this is either a loose belt, or low power steering fluid. Remember that Honda uses a diffrent power steering fluid from everyone else. Make sure it is a Honda compatable fluid, or you will get leaks.

Sounds like a stuck valve lifter. I'd use some oil additive for unsticking lifters.

SOURCE: ticking noise

you need to give us more info about your car, based on your info i would say one of your valve lifters is bleeding off pressure when the engine is off, you can try putting 1/2 qt. of automatic transmission fluid in your engine oil, atf is a good cleaning agent and may clean your lifters up. i have done it many times

Can hear ticking sound around engine


Hello jerry...does this "ticking" sound like it is coming from the top of the engine...the cylinder head area? You can take a short piece of hose, like a heater hose or even a garden hose, place one end to your ear and the other on the engine, move it around and u can pinpoint the area it is coming from better. I would say that your valves are probably making the ticking noise and need to be adjusted. Either that or an exhaust leak around the pipe and cylinder head, If you haven't adjusted the valves they probably are due for it. I will go ahead give you the specs for them.
Valves are to be adjusted and set on a COLD engine.

Intake Valve .001 to .003

Exhaust Valve .003 to .005

As you can see this is not much of a lash...so normal wear will cause them to start making noise once they get out of adjustment. I hope this helps & good luck with your bike.

I have a 2004 honda goldwing 1800 i don't ride it much at all but i start it once a week and let it run. I went to start it to go for a ride today and it had a knocking noise and it stoped so i rode it to...


Hello Gabe,

If the "knocking" noise sounds like it's coming from the lower end, listen to see if it's around the clutch area. My was making a "knocking" noise, only on cold starts, which sounded like the bike was trying to engage into gear. I drained the fluid from the clutch system and refilled with clean DOT 4 brake fluid. This stopped the problem.

Ironically enough, I was having the "ticking" problem too. When I would start my bike, about 30 seconds into warming it up, I heard a ticking noise for 2 -3 seconds of the right side of the bike. The Wing uses a hydraulic Valve and Tappet system which will, eventually, make noise if you run "low grade" fuel in the Wing. Go to your local Wal-Mart, or parts store, and buy a can of Sea Foam. Follow the directions on the bottle for the amount to use with a full tank of fuel (add it to your gas tank, not your crankcase). Fill your tank with Premium fuel and add the Sea Foam. Do this for two fill-ups and this should clean your valves and clear up your noise(s).

NOTE: any fuel with Ethanol in it is NOT good for bikes or cars and will cause buildup on your Valves. Sea Foam ALWAYS works. This is a cheap way to find out if it is just deposits or if you are going to need a mechanic.
